The Bears are 25-1 odds to win the Super Bowl, which are the ninth-best odds.

As usual, they're behind the Packers, who are 20-1.

In 2018 when they went 12-4, the Bears came into the season at 100-1 odds to win the Super Bowl.

The Los Angeles Chargers, Seahawks, Falcons, Rams and Vikings are the same odds as the Bears. On and, the Bears are 30-1.

The favorites are also encouraging for the Bears considering coach Matt Nagy came from Kansas City. Andy Reid's Chiefs are 7-1 odds. Then again, that's more a reflection on Patrick Mahomes than Reid and the Bears haven't got that position covered the same way.

The Ravens and 49ers are both 8-1.

In 2018 when they went 12-4, the Bears came into the season at 100-1 odds to win the Super Bowl.

Also of note, betting on where Tom Brady plays next year can be lucrative if you're taking the right team.

A $100 bet on the Bears pays $1,600 if he winds up in Chicago. The Chargers are paying $200 on a $100 bet, same as the New England Patriots.
